Saw this on FB today and thought it was pretty cool!!

Yak looks like it has nice glide and is pretty stable as well...pretty sure I won't be standing up like that guy though!  :smt002 :smt005



Looking forward to getting my hands on one and getting it bloody!

 :smt006

Sincerely,

Jim

Well, so far we now know it can be paddled in a flat ass calm river. :smt003

Seems an odd place to show off your off-shore boat.

LOL! Yep, FAC river but still looked like it paddled and glided nice to me, so that's why I shared.  :smt001

FWIW, this isn't a vid made by JK, just by a guy who stopped by the factory and got to demo one. I just saw it on FB and figured I would share.

 :smt006

Sincerely,

Jim

ps...as soon as I get mine I will be sure to share footage of paddling it out on the salt.  :smt008

Dear BigJim......

If I see a video of you paddling out over Ghost Trees at like a 20ft at 20 seconds say  :smt002 I'll sell my Ocean Kayak T13 and Tarpon 160 and buy any Jackson you say  :smt008

I know you can do it!!!!

Looks like it glides and paddles well. Where is the problem?

I was just pulling Jim's leg.  With all the anticipation, I was expecting to see some guy charging it through big swell.

The boat does like a good paddling machine.

All the preliminary hype on this boat reminds me of all of the commercials and trailers for the Godzilla movie. No wait, Godzilla vs the Kraken.  :smt044  Any yak will have to perform in real use situations to earn market share. Marketing will little impact on sales.
